Who is Bryan Jurewicz?

Bryan Jurewicz is a former professional National Football League player who was briefly a member of both the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts.

Jurewicz was a star lineman at Deerfield High School in Illinois, a starter on the varsity team in 1990 and 1991. He was named as an all-conference player in 1990, and again in 1991, also being named all-area, all-state, and the Gatorade Player of the Year for Illinois football.

He was a starting defensive lineman for the University of Wisconsin Badgers, going directly from red shirt to a starting player in 1993 when his predecessor was injured. He started playing at 6'5" and 240 pounds. In 1994, the sophomore started the season as a rushing linebacker, but was once again moved to defensive line, bulking up by 20 pounds in the process, and playing with the team in the Rose Bowl that year. He deflected 9 passes as a Badgers defensive lineman in 1996, a school record, and he was an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten Conference selection the same year. He made 9 tackles for a loss in his last five games with the Badgers, with UW assistant coach John Palermo calling him "...as good of a defensive lineman as there is in the league".
